Jim Dennison said it well:
"Our divisive, negative culture will know we are Christians by our love (John 13:35). We are most clearly the children of a loving God when we love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us (Matthew 5:44-45). As I've often noted, you can tell if you're a servant by the way you react when people treat you like one. When last did you "turn the other cheek" for Jesus?"
I want to forever struggle with being a loving servant of the Living One.
I too much want to be served, not to serve. I too often want to condemn my "enemies", but not love and pray for them. I know I should want to turn the other cheek when someone is raging out at me but I too easily strike out and slap others' faces.
I want to forever struggle with being a loving servant of the Living One. And He will help me in my struggle (2 Pe 1: 3).
